Make sure your curves are closed (BP won't work if they're not) and if you're trying to bevel one closed curve within another, make sure you select the outer curve first, then shift-select the inner. If you're still having problems, post a small screenshot of the curves.

Thanks NitroLiq,

Actaully I never figured it out yet but I was following a tutorial on a nurbs car racing seat by Deathbrain, and he sent me a file of the curves and they worked. I should go back and see what I did wrong though so that way I won't run into the problem again. Thanks again for your comment.

No problems. I was actually playing around with his "wheel" tutorial today but I must've messed up somewhere along the way....working with fillets/trims is killing me. I can usually get the first hole cut out but then crazy stuff starts happening. I'm going to try it again from scratch tomorrow and see what happens...if I still can't get it, I may drop him a line also. I think it needs abit more info.

I have to agree with you about the more info part. It would would be nice to know what the settings were in the option boxes because if we ended up changing them for something else we were doing, and then not know what to have them set on for his tutorial, it can cause problems. I noticed that you can get really weird stuff happening with the fillets if you have the radius set too large, but I don't know. Good luck with the wheel tut
